Houston Grand Opera presents The Barber of Seville In Texas
The Barber of Seville, opera’s comic masterpiece, gets a bilingual retelling in Kristine McIntyre’s adaptation of Rossini’s classic work. Now set on a ranch in the Lone Star State, The Barber of Seville in Texas shares the story of two star-crossed lovers facing a language barrier: Rosina only speaks Spanish, while Almaviva only knows English. Enter opera’s most famous barber, the bilingual Figaro.
Sung alternately in English and Spanish, this opera is directed by Cecilia Duarte.
